    I have used their product for almost 20 years and have always had any issues taken care of quickly by their team of experts, which is extremely important to me.

    Pros

    It handles everything I need to complete the bookkeeping end of my General Contracting business, from accounts payable to certified payroll reports. Well done!

    Cons

    No complaints, as there always seems to be frequent updates.

    I like working with AccuBuild. I use it all the time.

    Pros

    The ease of use and the support that is available when you need it.

    Cons

    That after some updates some functions are more difficult and not real clear how to correct an issue if you have one, such as Certified Payroll Reports if information has been entered that requires change after payroll has been posted. now it is more difficult to correct than in the past.

    Pros

    The best feature Accubuild offers is the ability to pull detailed data into Excel, which gives us the ability to create custom pivot tables or reporting in a variety of ways.

    Cons

    I dislike the direct deposit setup - you are unable to create a manual check without deactivating the direct deposit in the employee's setup. You must then reactivate it after the payroll check is complete.

    Pros

    I have been using this software for 14 years. For the most part it is pretty easy. There are some things I need help with like customizing reports.

    Cons

    I think the project management portion is hard to use.
    I don't like the support anymore. It used to be that when you called your questions or problems were solved asap. Now it is difficult to get a call back and when they do get back to us we can't understand them most of the time.

    Overall the experience has been positive. The changes over the past few years are concerning. There is not a focus on knowing us as a long term customer or meeting those needs.

    Pros

    flexibility to customize all aspects of software

    Cons

    sometimes the customization features are too advanced to figure out, such as building custom reports.

    I have been working with AccuBuild for the past seven years, any difficulties that came up were handled by the support department on a timely basis. I have worked with several accounting packages and I really do like AccuBuild.

    Pros

    Easy for new employees to learn and use. Payroll function is perfect for a company doing in house payroll.

    Cons

    Some reports can only be run in the current fiscal year but we can work around this issue.

    I like how you can pull a job cost capsheet and look to see if there is a budget in certain codes for me to code things to.

    Pros

    I like the document routing section the best. It is easy to attach documents and to code them with the correct phase and GL codes. It is convenient and easy to teach all of the approval users how to use it to look at their invoices for approval.

    Cons

    I wish there was a search button in the documents tab in the vendors list. I have some vendors that have a lot of documents and it is hard to find the one i am looking for when i have to scroll through hundreds of documents.

    The ability to make corrections in a familiar software platform used by most commercial construction companies

    Pros

    This is the industry standard for construction management. Most commonly used in most General contracting companies and in about 80% of all commercial companies.

    Cons

    not easy to navigate if it's your first time. After using and adapting to the short cuts it will become more familiar to navigate

    I came from a QuickBooks environment so this software is much more detail oriented. The document routing is fantastic and also many reports you are able to drilldown to see the document.

    Pros

    User friendly. Support is quick and efficient. Document routing is fantastic and cuts down on paper docs and files in the office. We are on the implementation team so we get to share ideas and requests. Being able to export information to a pdf and/or excel are a plus.

    Cons

    Not many cons, especially with being on the implementation team. Occasionally there are hang-ups but this may be caused by our internet connection.

    Good value for the price, decent user support, excellent adaptability for subcontractors, could be better in reporting, general ledger entry and paying invoices with credit cards.

    Pros

    If you work in the New Home Construction marketplace and deal with "buyer options" you have to buy this package. It is the only software package that I have seen that addresses buyer options.

    Cons

    The software is at least partially designed to work with general contractors and builders too so it has some a little trouble crossing over for subcontractors in some cases. However, overall it is the best subcontractor oriented package I have seen in the marketplace and the price is very attractive.

    Ease of use and adaptability.

    Pros

    AccuBuild software is customer friendly and easy to use. They have responsive Customer Support personnel and a great "Help" feature within the software, that shows step-by-step processes what needs to be done.

    Cons

    Sometimes we have to be the first to test a new feature, but in the end, they help us get the results that we want.

    Though the software is not always user friendly, Accubuild is quick to listen to user struggles/suggestions and advise or correct the issues/concerns to allow processes to flow smoothly in the future.

    Cons

    Not always user friendly. The developers are awesome, and the concept is there. However, applications do not always process through as quickly as they should.

    It takes care of most of our accounting job costing needs and the staff is willing to step in to adopt reports to our specific needs

    Pros

    AccuBuild's customer service gets back to us within hours (or minutes if it's pressing) and is very knowledgeable about their system and construction accounting. Our year-end tax needs including W2's and 1099's are now much more straightforward and simpler.

    Cons

    As a small contractor with only two users, their annual fee to renew a license is somewhat steep but the staff is willing to work with our requirements.

    The link to Aatrix was a great product improvement. I utilize the Mar reporting features to create templates custom to our business needs.

    Pros

    Many customization features available to customers for their own business processes. Also, the customer support is very timely on their responses.

    Cons

    The software is very well thought through but, seems to have a few broken links that reduces the ease and performance of the reporting features.

    Ease of use when it comes to generating reports. I like how easily i can drill into things and see the actual invoice, backup etc. The job cost report functions make my life so much easier.

    Pros

    ease of use and basic design. The program is user friendly. For the accounting side, job cost reports, finding invoices and tasks such as those i find the program wonderful. Fast and efficient. The Project Management platform is also nice, just not as comprehensive I find.

    Cons

    Most functions any non basic user would need or want have to be purchased in modules. Other programs offer those same tools. Anything is possible with Accubuild but i found most things came at an additional cost

    The benefit is that we can now view invoices rather than have to go to the file cabinet and look for invoices.

    Pros

    I can put my most used mods on the main screen so I don't have to go looking for them every time I need to use them.

    Cons

    I often have to seek out different reports to get all the information am looking for. I can't edit a document. certain mods don't remember my last settings.

    Pros

    I am a power user in our org and after the initial learning curve I find the software to be fairly good in regards to usability and functionality. There are limitations to its functionality that we encounter at times that we have to find work arounds for and documentation isn't always helpful. But as a daily user on the financial side of the software I am happy with it.

    Cons

    I wish the software had web integration and slight customization offered as part of its standard license package - this is an industry norm of most enterprise software systems and it seems if we want to go down this route with AB it will be expensive and very time consuming. Our experience with customization projects has proven this to be the case to date. Also, a feeling I have with regards to software development, whether it is legit, is that AB focuses on the wish list of a small group of companies they have a close relationship with.
